I've been reading all these letters and petitions about chlorinating our water and I agree they should also fluoride it.
All these people who say no one got sick from the E. coli in the water, do you have proof?
Chlorinating water has been going on for decades, here in Canada and around the world. Just because Chilliwack's water has gotten away with it for a long time doesn't mean it's not time for a change. There are so many people here now and so many have some sort of bowel or intestine problem, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, ect., so for anyone to say no one gets sick or has no side effects from contaminated water, doesn't know what they are talking about.
And as soon as someone in your family or a loved one gets sick from drinking bad water, all of you on your soapboxes will be the first ones to scream and yell and maybe even sue the municipality for not fixing the water problem sooner.
So chlorinate it and be done with it. I'd sooner pay more for safe water, then get sick over it.
